ArtsTime All the Time

March 3rd, 2009 · 2 Comments · Tags: ·····

If you live at the intersection of art and education, somewhere in Washington State, consider finding your way to Tukwila on March 20 & 21.  Perhaps Tukwila’s not where you thought to go for a refreshing break, but it’s the site of ArtsTime, a biennial professional development conference with an extensive menu of workshops in every flavor of art & education.

For your dance course, have a helping of the fabulous folk dances that Susan Wickett-Ford brings back from Pourparler every year.  Or get some fresh perspectives on integrating dance with other curriculum areas from Terry Goetz, Debbie Gilbert & Joanne Petroff, or Eric Johnson.

Working at the secondary level? Get some new ideas from Deb Maya, Maya Soto of NW Dance Syndrome, or Teresa Osborn.  Gather some thoughts on choreography and improvisation from Gail Heilbron & Jesse Jaramillo — or Charlene Curtis. Or cross-over into theatre movement with Karen Harp-Reed & Gary Reed, or Carla Barragan.

8:00 am Saturday the 21st?  I’ll be presenting a session on assessing dance in the classroom.

    Stumbled on your blog through a Google alert. Thank you for bringing your workshop to Tukwila. I work near the TCC. If you or your delegates have any questions about nearby restaurants for a pre/post snack or need hotel info don’t hesitate to let me know. I work at the local tourism office & visitor center and am happy to be a resource for you and/or your delegates. Wishing you a terrific workshop!
